Jameis Winston out for several weeks, say Buccaneers

Bucs have few sacks Saints don't allow them

Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter announced Monday that team doctors chose to sideline the quarterback for at least two weeks based on MRI results.

Winston did not play in the second half of the Bucaneers' 30-10 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday after landing on his right shoulder following a tackle.

The 23-year-old originally injured his shoulder in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals, leaving the game in the second quarter while Fitzpatrick filled in for him. The AC joint sprain has caused Winston to miss practice time ever since, typically preventing him from throwing most days leading up to games.

Ryan Fitzpatrick, who replaced Winston on both occasions, will get the start for the Buccaneers (2-6) on Sunday against his former team - the New York Jets (4-5).

Winston's production has also dropped as the injury lingered.

The Buccaneers will activate Ryan Griffin from injured reserve to serve as Fitzpatrick's backup until Winston is ready to resume football activities.

Winston completed 7-of-13 passes for 63 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions.

Winston has passed for 1,920 yards, 10 touchdowns and six interceptions on the season, which is his third in the league.
